Audrey, I am so thrilled that you were crowned Queen. I don't know how I was able to put a card together for you on the same day of the challenge as I haven't been able to do that in some time, but I pushed myself in your honor. Does that mean you'll share the treasure with me???
Your work is as extraordinary as is your spirit and I feel blessed to have met you IRL and gotten to know each other b/t stamping and going on "field trips" together!
I cased one of your cards that you had cased of Karen; but, you always puts such a unique spin on your creations, that I thought it would be okay.
The other reason is personal. If I'm not mistaken, I gave Audrey the orange flower she used on her card. Audrey gave me the MFT Flourish Diecut awhile back. And, we were together at Hobby Lobby when I found the beautiful cloisonne flower I used on this card. So, I thought I would put our 3 memories together.
OMG, I've always wanted to do a border layered card. I don't really know how, but I just kept addin' them on. I hope you can see all of them in the photo.
I added a sentiment I thought Audrey would like, an unusual ribbon for one of the borders with big flowers and lots of pearls. If you look real close on the bottom right side, you'll see the little "queen's crown" stamped onto a jewel tag.
Audrey, my friend, my punchie pal and almost twinzi 11 mos. apart, I hope you enjoy my rendition of your beautiful card. I wish I could do more, but your gallery is so awesome, I'd probably keel over trying to do another one.
Here's to you Queenie! Hugz Twinzi!

Pam, all these layers look amazing done in vanilla! Your lace ribbon trim along with that beautiful green flower are so soft, delicate and feminine! I can tell you are a real feminine gal by the way you create your cards. Your flourish and all those sweetly added pearls are perfect! How you managed to make this today is beyond me. Oh, and btw, Audrey and I are 13 months apart, so depending on which direction you and she are, we just may be closer twinzie! ; ) You'll need to let me know

Opps, guess it is "crisp" vanilla, now should I blame my eyes or my typing???

Pam, aka Pamzi, aka Twinzi - you've really outdone yourself on this one!!!!!!!! The longer I look at this beauty the more I see and the more I love it. Your choice to go with vanilla is so striking, and all the punched detailing is stunning. I love the flourish, the oh so feminine cloisonne flower, those fab diecut leaves (which you know I LOVE), and all the pearls. The beautiful sentiment AND ooooooh that teensy weensy crown just make it even more special :)!!!!! I looked and looked, I thought and thought, and then I knew - yes, it's a crown :). And yes the beautiful orange flower on my card was given to me by you. Thank you for playing today - it's such a special feeling to see your card here in this gallery. Hugz and blessings my punchie friend!!!

I knew you would come up with an awesome card for Audzi. Bringing out the cloisonne flower, too. Wow! It is a beauty. See those green pearls, etc. on your card? This is the color I am turning over yours and Audzi's shopping trips. LOL Does she know as much about you as I know? :rolleyes::)
I'll have to fill her in.
Seriously, it sounds as if you two are having so much fun. Just don't get each other into too much trouble.
I wish I had time tomorrow to case another one of Audzi's cards. Her gallery is so outstanding.
I'm sure you have pleased her greatly with your beautiful card.
